Live at the Marquee (video)

It took several years but I finally made it to a Social Distortion show. Many opportunities to see them did arise through the years, but for one reason or another I was not able to go, including having to miss because my daughter was sick. She is now close to the age I was on the night of that missed show. My how time flies. Band members have changed, and Social Distortion is no longer the young band I first fell in love with, but Mike Ness and the band sounded great. It was a lively show!

I had a flashback during the performance… I remembered playing their song, Winners and Losers (below) in the classroom while teaching the book, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde to tenth graders – played on my CD player, before streaming video. I remember one of my students saying, “My mom loves that band.” Sounds about right. πŸ˜‚ I incorporated music whenever possible in my reading and writing classroom; sometimes that included a brief history lesson on the musician or band. Kids today. πŸ™„ I am thrilled to have finally made it to a Social Distortion show. I will be equally delighted, in a more subdued manner, tonight, when I make my own music with my clarinet before unwinding my body and thoughts by a cozy fire. Sounds about right. 😌

Thank you for visiting and watching! Be well. πŸ’— Michele

    1. Oh yes, I couldn’t live without the music living in me. πŸ₯° My lesson planning was creative and multifaced- more work for me but worthwhile, keeping students engaged, and myself too! 😁 Thank you, Brad, for acknowledging.

    1. They have some great lyrics. Timeless too! 🎢 That’s pretty much what a mosh pit is. πŸ˜‚ They can escalate to more aggressive behavior but mostly it’s a way for people to let out pent-up energy. Pushy adult playground behavior. πŸ˜‚

    1. Me too! Fortunately, it was worth the wait. They were fun and the audience was too. It’s fun meeting people at shows. 😁 Nothing compares to watching a bunch of old men play like kids in a mosh pit. πŸ˜‚

    I saw a guy wearing a social distortion jacket at a grocery store in palm desert on Thursday. He had a very nice hat and watch. His whole look was high quality, expensive and well curated but, still understated with a classy, low key vibe. If they were traveling between Anaheim and Tempe that would be the right time for them to pass through the area. I might have seen greatness and failed to realize it!
